Road Runner Food Bank Extensive Cost Saving
Facility Improvements Wowed September’s Tour

“If you missed this meeting, you missed a great, informative event,” commented Facility Manager Association of New Mexico’s president Tom Plummer as the on-site visit to the Road Runner Foodbank wrapped up on a sunny September morning.  The interactive, hands-on facility tour provided priceless guidance, outstanding information sharing, and the spirit of co-operation and comradery for which FMANM is noted.  Road Runner’s Chief Operations Officer Teresa Johansen led an invigorating and technology-jammed trek through her facility where she strives to save on facility costs to enable the non-profit organization to feed more hungry New Mexicans, where according to latest rankings, more children go to bed hungry than any other state in the nation.

Her strong message? “DON’T THROW ANYTHING AWAY.”  If you are reading this and have any type of hard goods you are eliminating from your facility, please contact Teresa at teresa@rrfb.org to arrange a donation.  Anything is considered but a big need right now is for a back-up generator.  Think outside the box at your facility, or if you are a supplier as visit your customers, help empower this amazing organization on a critical mission to reach even more struggling folks.

Long-time facility manager but first time FMANM attendee Burl Lewis from Alliance Data Services commented, “I made connections that will save me invaluable time and effort as I confront upcoming projects in my building. FMA is a great resource for facility manager, no question.”

Attention Healthcare Facility Managers
Or Any FM Who Needs Compliance Training:
Here is a Resource 

The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) Hazardous Waste Bureau conducts hazardous waste inspections at hospitals, pharmacies, as well as other types of facilities.  They offer their services to conduct free training concerning managing hazardous waste at hospitals and pharmacies.  Having recently conducted inspections at several hospitals, they have found the majority of them to be out of compliance.  Their aim to provide this training to large audiences spreads the information more quickly than individually inspecting each hospital/pharmacy.

But beyond healthcare, NMED believes they might be able to target some training for other diverse and various types of facilities.  Compliance assistance is a key component in their program and keeping facilities in compliance makes the job a lot easier. 

Need more information to start this discussion? Contact Janine Kraemer, CHMM, Hazardous Waste Supervisor for the New Mexico Environment Department, 2905 Rodeo Park Drive East, Building 1,Santa Fe NM 87505 office  505-476-4372, or email to janine.kraemer@state.nm.us  or connect with Facility Manager Association’s vice president, Tom Plummer with the Indian Health Services at thomas.plummer@ihs.gov
